The ESU model of the DB class V60 is completely new! Chassis, body, motor, gearbox, centre pick-up including its holding fixture, smoke generator, lighting, digital coupler, speaker as well as all details have been developed from scratch. The headlight inserts have vertical engravings in order to match the appearance of DB standard lanterns. The conversion from AC (as delivered) to DC mode is accomplished by pulling off the centre pick-up and by activating a small sliding switch right in front of the forward axle. The digitally remote controlled electromagnetic coupler (shunting coupler) is inserted into the standard coupler shaft as per NEM 362. The mounting height of the coupler can be adjusted in two steps. If necessary it can be removed and replaced by another (non-digital) coupler without soldering. The newly designed smoke generator supplies a larger amount of exhaust fumes. Of course, the LokSound 5 decoder is completely new. Smooth running characteristics and a number of useful functions and potential settings offer plenty of options for the operation oriented model train enthusiast. There is a function “heavy train” where acceleration and deceleration time are doubled and the motor acoustically works with higher revs. When activating the “locomotive brake”, the locomotive changes to idle and slows down a bit faster than normal – if required, right down to a standstill. This function works independently from the throttle setting. In shunting mode, the locomotive accelerates and slows down faster than in normal mode.
